Tim's Tags of Christmas 2011

Well I have managed to make 2 so far.

Please excuse the photography -  didn't manage to get them finished in time to take them in the daylight. But I hope you can see the similarities.

I don't have any kraft resist paper so I made my own with a piece of brown wrapping paper, music stamp and embossing. In the top left corner is a Poinsettia, but you can't see that now. I also don't have the edge die and again improvised using a spellbinders border and using the cut away.
I am quite pleased with the outcome though.

I loved making the background for this one - great technique, but more improvisation as I don't have the coredinations. I also have to admit that the pinecones are off of an old decoration.

Maybe I will be able to make some more soon, but I will certainly try when both school and Christmas preparations are finished.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

I can tell you've had some fun with these! Made me chuckle as you tell us what you don't have...and the pine cones.... Maybe your family will view the post and to see what you need for Christmas! lol

Hello Brenda
You obviously do not need the co-ordinations or die etc as you have made two beautiful Tags, by being creative, and they are stunning.

Love them both Brenda, they are awesome.

These are both just gorgeous Brenda and your improvising is fabulous. They both look amazing.
I'm currently stuck on the third one as I haven't got any of Tim's stuff for this one and have gone back to the start twice as I'm not yet happy with it - groan.
Have a good week too.
Hugs, Fliss xx
